The Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its 2020 Citizen of the Year. The Chamber annually presents its Citizen of the Year Award to honor a man or woman who has made significant contributions to the Greenville-Pitt County community.
The presentation of this award dates back to 1967 when Dr. Leo W. Jenkins, sixth chancellor of East Carolina University, was honored as the very first recipient. The award represents a prestigious recognition by the community of the recipient's commitment and dedication to the advancement of Greenville-Pitt County.
Citizens and Chamber members are encouraged to nominate persons they feel are deserving of this recognition. To be considered for the award, the nominee should be someone who enjoys a reputation for continuous community service, has been honored for involvement with business-related and/or personal affiliations or professional associations, and has made a positive, impactful difference in the community in recent years.
The 2020 Citizen of the Year Award will be presented during the Chamber's Annual Membership Celebration in March 2021.
Nominations are being accepted through Friday, January, 15, 2021 and may be submitted electronically or via mail. To download a nomination form, visit greenvillenc.org/2020citizenoftheyear.
